By Colin Killian, Public Communications Manager

The College Station City Council meets at city hall on Thursday for its workshop (after 5 p.m.) and regular (6 p.m.) meetings. Public attendance is restricted.

The meetings will be streamed live on Suddenlink Channel 19 and at cstx.gov/cstv19. To join the meeting online, go to Zoom or call 888-475-4499 and enter meeting number 990 7628 0717. Public comments will be allowed through Zoom.

To address the council via Zoom about any agenda item — or about non-agenda topics during Hear Visitors — you must register with the city secretary before the meeting by calling 979-764-3500 or emailing CSO@cstx.gov before the meeting starts. Written comments submitted to CSO@cstx.gov will be provided to the council members.

Here are five items to watch:

  • Thomas Park Planning: In the workshop, the council will discuss future planning and capital projects for Mabel Clare Thomas Park, including roadways, sidewalks, drainage, and improvements.
  • FY 21 Budget Adoption: In the regular meeting, the council will consider adopting the city’s proposed FY 21 budget.
  • FY 21 Tax Rate Adoption: The council will consider adopting the proposed FY 21 property tax rate of $0.534618 per $100 of assessed value, which is the same as the FY 20 rate.
  • Alamosa Street Rezoning: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to change the zoning from Townhouse to Planned Development District for about four acres at 3914 Alamosa Street, which is west of Harvey Road and south of Summit Crossing Lane. The change addresses market changes and provides small-lot, single-family homes.
  • Veterans Park Improvements: The council will consider a $1.93 million contract with JaCody Construction for drainage, roadway and playability improvements at Veterans Park & Athletic Complex. The project includes improved drainage and roadways, an additional restroom, sidewalks, and two new playgrounds.
